SHAPE THE FUTURE OF BLACK ART.

Services

Collaborative Grant-making

We confirm the model that individuals have the capacity to make impact in their cultural community, and that individual dollars—working collectively like a foundation—are imperative to dynamic cultural production.

BLACK ARTS ORGANIZATIONS

Our interdisciplinary roster of grantees operate at or below $750,000 annually, and continue to present dynamic and engaging Black arts and artists to their community year in and year out. 

Visionary Leadership

BAFF is steered by DéLana R.A. Dameron with her founding board Ope Bukola (chair), Ed Brockhoff, Rickey Laurentiis, and Jessica Lynne. Our individual donors into the fund make all of this possible.
